Hi,

I've been trying for hours to mesh this airfoil with an airbrake up. I used quad Elements with the naked airfoil and the results were great. But in that case I can't suceed to mesh my geometry using quad Elements.
I could use your experience to find a strategy for this mesh !

Thanks,
Charles

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
use the appendix (top small edge) for creating an ellipse or whatever ( (surrounding your airfoil)) which will be used to split your domain

Thanks for your help, now that I had some sleep, I'll try that out with a fresher head

I suceed with a rectangular face around my airfoil, meshed using a mesh seed on edges, a size function and some "Tri" Elements.

Thanks a lot for your help -mAx- !
